Radiomic Agency Consulting firm Experts Specialists Consultancy

Improve diagnosis and develop a more personalized treatment approach thanks to Radiomics

The Alcimed healthcare team is continuously supporting healthcare players to get understanding of future technologies that will impact the cancer care pathway. One of these technologies is radiomics. We here explore questions around quality of life, earlier and better diagnosis, the prediction of treatment options and their success as well as the development of new biomarkers.

    The challenges related to radiomics

    Artificial intelligence, deep learning or machine learning algorithms are based on medical images and are developed to detect the smallest incoherences in abnormal tumor cells. Which in turn allows not only for the clinical development of new biomarkers or drugs, but also enables better patient segmentation into clinical trials, or choose the correct treatment predicting success.

    Overall, radiomic has the potential to transform the pharmaceutical industry by providing new insights into disease biology and enabling the development of more targeted and personalized therapies.

    Yet the technology is still an early one and we see several roadblocks ahead at least in complex diagnostic environments with high data variability. Some of these roadblocks can link to concerns regarding data sharing, the (often) heterogeneity of available features to develop and then integrate tools into practice and to make it applicable for all patients. In the same line a lack of multi-centric trials could negatively impact on reimbursement options later on.

      How we support you in your projects related to radiomics

      Radiomic is quite a new topic in healthcare, and we have seen new questions around radiomics for 5 years, in Oncology and outside Oncology. Interestingly, the field is simultaneously explored by public institutions, big pharmas, and some biotechs from healthtech. Our proximity and projects with all these players allow us to stay at the top-edge of the current developments, and to have a global and in-depth understanding of the issues addressed in the field of radiomic.

      Our projects cover topics as diverse as new technologies, preparation of new clinical developments, the understanding of disease management and patients care pathways, identifying and studying potential partners to develop solutions around radiomics, launches of new assets, or the understanding of how real-life data can be collected and analyzed as well as to understand how patients data can be used to develop personalized cancer treatment offers.

      Examples of recent projects carried out for our clients in radiomics

      • Mapping and selecting artificial intelligence providers for digital pathology applications

        One of our clients, a leader in the medical device industry, was searching for a competent partner in programming artificial intelligence applications for digital pathology, with the objective of extending its product offering.

        To do so, our team conducted a global scouting of innovative AI providers, with an analysis in terms of technological maturity, business maturity and their network strength. Based on our study, a selection of prioritized providers was approached to explore opportunities for collaboration with our client.

      • Evaluation of digital solutions for medical imaging data collection

        We supported one of our clients, a leader in the healthcare sector, who wanted to explore the opportunity to diversify its activities through the integration and use of digital solutions for the generation and collection of medical imaging data.

        For this study, our teams evaluated the different data capture technologies available on the market and conducted an analysis of their features, their advantages and their limits, as well as the existing approaches for their use in several countries.

        Following our analysis, we defined 4 approaches enabling our client to integrate and to set up these new selected digital data services and established an operational action plan to carry out pilot projects. In the end, the pilot was successful and our client was able to launch a new differentiating offer.

      • Development and launch strategy of a new radiomic tool

        Alcimed supported a top pharma player in defining the strategy of a new radiomic tool specifically targeting rare cancer diagnosis.

        We helped our client to understand the current diagnosis pathways in addition to needs and challenges linked to it, identified trends in the indication, and aimed to understand how these trends and underlying future technologies will impact the current pathway and shape it in the future.

        We then conducted an analysis of the key features and expected level of proof to ensure a successful launch. Our study allowed our client to optimally design the last development stages of the tool and prepare for its launch.
